for Current Students
We offer the Placement Tests for current student four different weeks a semester. These tests are administered in person on a walk-in basis so we can score your tests quickly and you can register for a class.
Current students who need to take the test are those who did not take it before coming to UMBC or those who's test has expired after two years.
